I've been in a "pain, strife, suffering, etc. are good" mood lately. Which inevitably leads me into the statement that this is a perfect world. If there's one thing I can't stand, it's lots of mewleing about "why can't things be like this?" I generally approach effecting change in two steps:
- Accept the world as it is. Realize that it is perfect and doesn't need to be changed.
- Change it.
Far more effective than whinging on about things. And as of late, I've been choosing to enforce my changes in a small zone. For the time being, I'm choosing the isolationist route; the world can go to hell so long as it leaves me alone. I'm not sure how long that's going to stay. It can't be too long; too many threats to my TAZ if I don't deal with the Outside.
At any rate, the realization that the world needs no change, followed by changing it, is terribly important. It involves... mental contortions that most people aren't comfortable with. Look at it this way, if the world weren't the way it was, you wouldn't have any reason to attempt to change it, and hence, would have pretty much no purpose. So the world is perfectly flawed. That's really the big thing in my head.
The world is dirty, messy, and unpleasant. Nature abhors purity. Also, Nature abhors stasis. Nature abhors unity. Moreover, I abhor them. And that's really what this post is about, being my post and all. So... yeah.
